Hi, Don,

I am aware of the difference, but the click/crackle I had on the very 
damaged record that ClickRepair did so well on approaches crackle.

Since each tool works differently for different people, this comment is 
worth repeating.

I think anyone interested in this type of work (unless they have the 
really high-end software like Cedar) should download a trial copy (valid 
for 21 days). That will go much farther than us chatting about it. <smile>

The prices via the Kagi store are $45US for ClickRepair and $45US for 
both Denoise & DenoiseLF. The equalizer is free.  If you pay via PayPal 
(a manual process), both combined are $70AUS.
